Formula Ford Challenge Series


All cars must have a Ford Engine per SCCA or Monoposto rules and must run on vintage Formula Ford treaded tires.  There will be a class within the overall race group for most Formula Fords manufactured between 1967 and 1981. Post 1981 Fords subject to approval. 

 


Modern Historics


Certain to be the fastest group of the weekend watch non vintage eligible production and special cars built after 1975  blaze around the track. Including entries from the V8 Road Racing Series. (Refer to SVRA Groups 10 and 12/MP for general guidance) the Dodge Viper will be our 2020 Spotlight Car – all Vipers are eligible to compete in this Group. Any Modern BMW Club racers that register will be placed in this group for 2020.

 


Sports 2000

This fast and agile group is comprised of Sports 2000 cars which fall into one of three classes (S2 or Sports 2000, VS2 or Vintage Sports 2000, and HS2 or Historic Sports 2000) and select sports racers such as Lotus 23’s and Elva Mk. VII’s.

 


Vette vs Viper Race


Corvette will be the 2020 Marque of the Year and  Dodge Viper will be our 2020 Spotlight Car. All eligible Corvettes and Vipers will compete in our Modern Historics group all weekend. If we receive enough entries we will pit these two legends in a Vette vs Viper single session race on Sunday afternoon.

 


Special Note: No BMW Club Race in 2020



Due to scheduling conflicts there is a BMWCCA points race at Summit Point the same weekend – any BMW entrants will be placed in either a vintage group or in the Modern Historics Group. BMW will return with a dedicated Group in 2021. BMW National Club Racing has been hosting a premiere event with us, featuring BMW Spec, Stock, Modified and Prepared Classes along with fully prepared race cars built from BMW street cars.
